In the early 1950s, Rod Braybon's father died, leaving his mother with eight children she couldn't care for. As a ward of the state, Rod was passed from institution to institution until he finally ended up at the notorious Bayswater Boy's Home run by the Salvation Army.

Rod endured years of ill-treatment at the hands of the Salvation Army, then spent a life-time repressing the memories that haunted him. His story created a nation-wide sensation and won a prestigious award for the journalist who broke it.

That Rod was willing to speak out to try and ease the suffering of others like him, is incredible. That he survived at all, is nothing short of a miracle. Salvation is a story of courage and the indomitable Aussie spirit.

About the Author

In Vikki Petraitis's own words:

"In the beginning, my interest in crime was totally fiction. My first foray into crime was in about Year 7 when I plucked Agatha Christie’s Sparkling Cyanide off the shelf of my school library. From the first novel, I loved the drama and the trickery of crime fiction. I also loved that the reader was sort of the detective as well. It was up to us to try and pick whodunit before it was revealed at the end."


Abuse of Children


Sad to think that these people exist and have even filtered into such a good organization who do so much for people.

Strathfield Sydney


Another example of institutional abuse


A great read about the institutional experiences of boys of that era of when I grew up. Intend to read again. Book was delivered on time.



"Don't judge a book by its cover"


Hard to believe this sort of thing went on right under our noses here in Australia, shocking, and very sad.
